Certain cow’s milk-based baby formulas have been linked to a sometimes fatal gastrointestinal diseased called necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).
Several complaints came from the parents of premature babies consuming two types of baby formula — Similac from Abbott Laboratories and Enfamil baby formula from Mead Johnson.
Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson manufactured these formulas as a substitute for breast milk and have often been fed to premature infants.
In April 2022, the first Similac and Enfamil Baby Formula Lawsuits were filed in courts across the United States.
Since then, a multidistrict litigation (MDL) has been established to consolidate the baby formula lawsuits into one singular court.
As the litigation develops, attorneys from across the country are still accepting clients — nearly all of which are the parents of premature babies who have suffered from necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and the negligence of Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson.

Several scientific studies have established links between cow milk formulas and necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).
These links have been known to the scientific community for quite some time, but only recently has litigation been targeted at baby formula manufacturers.
You may be eligible to file a claim against baby formula manufacturers if your child has developed NEC after being fed Similac or Enfamil products.
Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson are baby formula manufacturers who have a duty of care to their consumers — premature infants and their parents.
These baby formula manufacturers potentially breached their duty of care when they manufactured, distributed, and profited from baby formula that resulted in NEC diagnoses.
If your child has been been diagnosed with NEC after consuming toxic baby formulas or other infant formula products, you may be eligible to file an NEC Lawsuit.
Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson may have endangered the lives of many premature infants.
